I think the best list will have to include at least one platformer, an RPG, a couple casual games (like fruit ninja or extinction squad, where a brain isnt necessary, lol), an action game, a game your girlfriend loves, couple games that you always play despite being old games, one endless Temple-Run-clone runner, a puzzle game, an HdO, and the TA app.

Dead Space
Monster Flip
Dynamite Jack
Tiny Wings
Fruit Ninja
World of Goo
Monsters ate my condo
Hard Lines
Flight Control
Bumpy Road
Zombie Smash
Temple Run
Cubes vs Spheres
Puzzle Juice
Plants vs Zombies
One angry birds game

I think this list well covers my favourites from each genre: puzzlers, casual, TD, endless runners

Even though i'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to games, and I don't really delete much unless i'm low on space [have run out of homescreen pages, having to folder everything now ], these are the one's that will be on every iOS device I own [as much as possible]

Playing: Ski Safari, Polara, Girls Like Robots, Dynamite Jack, Monster Flip, Polymer, Super Mole Escape, Dream of Pixels, Radballs

My own list of permanent games is determined primarily by replay value irrespective of the genre. There are some really excellent games such as Sword & Sworcery, World of Goo, and Mage Gauntlet that I would like to give a permanent home but which are somewhat difficult to return to frequently after completion.
